Crime levels in the Finn Valley area have increased dramatically over the last 6 years according to figures obtained by Sinn Fein.

The level of burglary and theft increased by more than 50 per cent in Ballybofey in 2014 compared with two years previous, while reports of theft had risen by 82 per cent in Lifford for the same period.
